Boxing legends “Sugar” Ray Leonard and Tommy “Hitman” Hearns stepped into the ring together for the first time since 1989, and this time, the gloves came off. The champs were the main attraction at Fight Night at the Marconi Automotive Museum, an annual fundraiser benefiting the venue’s foundation for kids and the Speech and Language Development Center. More than 400 guests, including VIPs such as former NFL player Vince Ferragamo, women’s pro boxer Mia St. John, and local philanthropists Glenn and Mindy Stearns, rolled up to the party in limos and luxury cars for a night of bidding, boxing and dining on a sumptuous meal ringside. Although no blows were thrown between Leonard and Hearns, there was plenty of action, with a Vegas-style sports book that allowed partygoers a chance to bet on the evening’s matches, with all wagers going to charity, natch. At the end of the night, about $300,000 was raised for the children’s orgs. Ring that bell! Photos by BleuCottonPhotography.com
